Just discovered (accidentally) that our 3.5 week old loves Max and Ruby on Netflix.

We've just had our first ever 30 minutes of quiet when he's not sleeping.

2015 - Paid 50 for some shares (max I was allowed at the time)
2018 - Received 6,207.00 as tax free returns.

Marvellous.

thats way to much for you to responsibly handle - you should share that around the trickery crew I think.

Hmm well with that spending pattern i'm not convinced you are mentally fit to handle this cash

You'd best hand it all over I think and let someone who knows whats best deal with it.

2017 - bought 1800 of shares
2018 - currently worth ~1500

Luckily I bought out of gross pay and the dividends are better than the bank interest, but I'd suggest no one take any advice at all ever from me!

Just found out the COO of the company I work for has an old Press Steam account from his days as Editor of PC Gamer. I asked what the benefits of a Press account were. He then proceeded to login to Steam and started adding random games to his Steam library... free of charge. His library contains 3,000+ games and counting.

In case anyone was wondering, Steam no longer hand out Press accounts

Take your laptop to work and get authorisation as a friend and family user on his account. If that's still a thing.

After three months of anxiety, stress, the feeling of being left in limbo, and a moment of blind panic when receiving a request for additional documents last week, my wife finally received her Spousal Visa today.

Relief, joy and excitement in abundance.

Bullet point summary of past two weeks:
  • Formally notified that I'm at risk of redundancy again
  • Meet the UK director of the US owner of the Australian software company that makes the system that I spend 50% of my working day managing and make it known that I might be looking for a new job soon
  • UK director of the US owner of the Australian software company that makes the system that I spend 50% of my working day managing suggests that they might be expanding their UK operations soon and suggests I join them
  • I email the guy the next day expressing an interest in joining said team
  • Within an hour, the UK director of the Australian software company adds me on LinkedIn
  • A few days later the CEO of the Australian company adds me on LinkedIn and messages me to say that the UK Director passed on my details and could he call me to talk about the role
  • He calls me this morning and seems to be talking in terms of a support role in the UK which would be made for me and would I be interested
  • He messages me two hours ago asking what my salary expectations are
  • I tell him what my expectations are
  • He says "I think we can do that, let me talk to the US budget holders and see what I can do"
  • I'm typing this with a fat old smile on my face

Yeps, well done with that, QT!!

Staying on a "Work News" theme... this happened a couple of months ago: https://www.thomsonreuters.com/en/pr...-business.html - divestiture... or "FRexit"
This is quite a split for the company... so who knows what will happen with jobs on both sides of the split. I've been told I'm staying with TR (as opposed to being on F&R side) post-split.
I don't know if this will see me "Praising" or not!
